AMD addresses the TPM flaw that is creating stuttering difficulties as “SPIROM”

No Permanent fix is available until May

AMD Ryzen Chip

As per Windows Central (an online news portal), AMD has identified a stuttering issue on Ryzen computers caused by its “firmware trusted platform module (fTPM)”.

For months, numerous AMD users have now been experiencing performance concerns, with one of the users describing it as a sudden dip in frame rates and even sometimes a “robotic” sounding audio. AMD has just recently reacted to complaints, attributing the problem to “longer fTPM-related memory operations in SPI flash memory (“SPIROM”) situated on the motherboard.”

According to AMD, this might result in “temporary pauses in system interaction or responsiveness until the transaction is completed” or, to put it another way, stuttering.

To run Windows 11, Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 is required. A module that is used to create a kind of encrypted algorithm to boot a user’s device, which helps safeguard it from hackers trying to compromise the sensitive data on the device. A firmware trusted platform module (fTPM) is incorporated into the firmware of your system, while a discrete trusted platform module (dTPM) is a physical chip implanted on the motherboard performing the same job.

A permanent solution coming in the form of a BIOS upgrade isn’t due until May. As an interim remedy, AMD says you’ll have to convert to a hardware-based dTPM. If your motherboard has a compliant TPM 2.0 header, a TPM chip will cost between $20 and $60, depending on the manufacturer. Before upgrading to a dTPM, AMD recommends disabling TPM-backed encryption technologies like as BitLocker Drive Encryption and backing up your system’s data.
